There Was No Way To Save Her
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
It was a mess in the wizardry barrier.
Di Fuyi tried to use a few milder methods to break the barrier, but they were useless. Instead, Gu Xijiu was hurt even more with his every attempt. It was so dangerous inside that she almost lost her arm under Mo Zhao’s violent attacks.
Blood started to flow from her wound, staining her entire left arm in red.
Di Fuyi dared not make another move.
He could no longer calm himself down. Driven by anxiety, his limbs went cold.
It was the first time for him to know how fear felt like. His emotions were whirling in a chaotic jumble. He had lost his usual sense of thought. After contemplating for a while, he immediately contacted Long Siye.
Although he had suspended Long Siye’s status as a heaven’s gift disciple, he did not confiscate his jade tablet. He hoped that Long Siye still kept it close to him.
Luckily, Long Siye did not lose the jade tablet. He picked up the call immediately. “Celestial Master Zuo, have you found Xijiu?”
Di Fuyi was not in the mood for some unnecessary small talk. “Has she learned any unusual spell before? It is a spell that can channel the power of her soul to set up a wizardry barrier.” He quickly briefed Long Siye about the characteristics of the barrier, hoping that Long Siye would have a clue.
Long Siye’s tone changed immediately. “Where is she? Is she going after Mo Zhao? Is she risking her life to fight against him?”
Di Fuyi did not conceal any information from him. He answered with the exact location and their current situation before he continued, “Do you know about the wizardry barrier? How do I break it?”
Long Siye’s voice ripped through the air. “Di Fuyi, you are driving her to her death! She is ready to die with Mo Zhao in the fight!”
Di Fuyi took a deep breath. “I am finding ways to save her. Tell me the way, so I can break through the barrier and get her out from danger. She is still alive right now.”
Long Siye answered in disbelief. “Save her? I am afraid that there is no other way. The barrier was made from the Soul Condemning Spell. It will not be deactivated unless the creator is dead.”
“What… What do you mean?” Di Fuyi’s voice started to tremble.
There was no way he could tell if Long Siye was crying or laughing. “She learned it from a great exorcist back in the modern days. The exorcist was a descendent of the Nuwa Empress. Her skill in exorcism was beyond compare. Xijiu stayed with her for some time to learn her Kung Fu, including the Holy Spirit wizardry barrier and the Soul Condemning Spell. The two spells complement one another in a sequence. Once it is activated, it will immediately advance the creator’s power by five folds, but it can only be deactivated when one of them, the creator or the opponent, dies. No outsider can play a part in the battle. Please, do not attempt to break into the barrier that she made. It would be the equivalent of attacking her. You will kill her, just like what Mo Zhao wishes.”
Di Fuyi’s body froze. He could not get himself together. His ears started to buzz. He stared blankly at Gu Xijiu, who was currently fluttering in the air and fighting vigorously. He believed that she was aware of his presence.
She was the one who made the wizardry barrier, how could she not notice it when someone attacked it?
She could not care less. She did not even bother to turn her eyes to check it out. She seemed to be very determined to die. Had she lost all hope to live? She seemed to have let the past go.
The way she looked at him was as though he was a stranger. She accepted him as a normal friend and even accomplished some tasks together just before this battle.
He thought that she had already recovered from the past and started to become stronger on her own.
He finally realized that she had only been acting. All she wanted was to kill herself.
Long Siye lost all hope too. “Di Fuyi, she loves you, so much that she is willing to do anything for you!”
